Air Conditioning Oil Needed for Receiver - Accumlator and Evaporator?

The total refrigerant capacity we have had consistent specs for a multitude of varying sources. Helms, underhood, owner's manual, Honda dealer, Napa guide, and a local shop that specializes in A/C work with over 20 years in business and with a very reputable status. Each of these sources listed within what was specified by Honda and Owner's Manual. Nothing in Owner's Manual or Helms lists the total A/C lubricant or oil capacity. No underhood specification for oil. Although, it did list total refrigerant specs but no oil capacity. I called the local Honda dealership and they didn't have the total as well. All they had was the same specs listed in the Helms. The Napa list of refrigerant capacities which is here http://search.yahoo.com/r/_ylt=A0oG7...26view=napa_hc (.pdf file, sorry. I couldn't upload it for some crazy reason) lists the total system oil capacity of 4.5 ounces. The local shop said 8 ounces for total sytem. So it is 4 for the the compressor and 4.5 for the rest of the system or 4.5 oz total? Any ideas and has anyone been through this?

If the system is drained of all oil I think you would need 1to can of oil plus refrigerant. I could be wrong but i havethink only basic knowledge when it comes down to refrigerant .
